In Praise Of Easy

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

Leaving the Puerto Vallarta airport our most recent visit to this part of the world, we knew right away that we were back in North America. Alongside the highway, we saw Wal-Mart, Home Depot, a mega-grocery store, Domino's Pizza...

Retire To Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

The World's Most Romantic Oceanside Retirement

July 18, 2011, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, is the world’s most romantic overseas retirement haven.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

"Early in the morning," writes Correspondent Lauren Stanley in this month's issue of the Overseas Retirement Letter, "joggers and dog-walkers are the only ones on the malecón, the seaside boardwalk separating the white-sand beach from the cobblestoned street with its row of shops. Often there is a slight haze in the air, softening the Pacific's blue and blurring the sharp edges of the high-rises seen in the distance, across the bay.


How To Retire Overseas

This Isn't Only About The Money

July 17, 2011, Panama City, Panama: Boiling a retire-overseas adventure down to a line-item comparison of costs for things like cable television and a pound of ground beef is a mistake.

How To Buy Property Overseas

The Cost Of Holding Can Be More Important Than The Cost Of Buying

July 15, 2011, Panama City, Panama: When making any overseas property investment, it’s important to understand all related carrying costs, including HOA fees, property taxes, and utility expense.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

I read this week about a home owner's association in Florida foreclosing on units because owners are delinquent with their HOA fees. The article focused on a couple of condo complexes where the monthly HOA fees had been increased to the point where they were more than the mortgage payments of the owners. Units in one complex sold for US$89,000 at the height of the boom. One owner of one of these units currently has it listed for sale for US$18,500 (about what he owes in back HOA fees).
